Harrow Green provides relocation resource to the Airbus Aerospace Park Development project

15 October 2013

Airbus’s presence in Filton is being enhanced with the construction of a new aerospace business park to consolidate the site’s engineering, design, customer support and other staff in one highly efficient office block. Features of this 12-acre facility, which Airbus began building in March 2012, include modern office space and an auditorium.

The development of the Airbus Aerospace Park in Filton, a multi-million pound state-of-the-art engineering and technology campus, will see over 2,700 of the firm’s 4,000 employees move to the park when it opens later in 2013.

Harrow Green, the specialist relocation experts, won the contract after a lengthy tender process. Harrow Green will provide Airbus UK with a managed resource for the relocation of staff and the disconnection and migration of IT equipment between buildings on the site.

The logistical dimensions of the moves are complex owing to the size and scope of the project within a tight time frame. Approximately 20 buildings will be vacated across the site with over 2,700 moving into two new buildings, a further 1,400 staff into two existing buildings involving the temporary move of current occupants to allow refurbishment before final occupation.

Harrow Green will also be providing Airbus with a full range of environmental services including: recycling, reuse, charitable donation and resale of redundant furniture, IT and related office equipment. Airbus is committed to its corporate social responsibility policy and sees the clearance of old furniture as an important element of the project.

Stephen Noake, Harrow Green’s manager for the contract, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed by Airbus to help them on the journey to their new state-of-the-art campus.”
